Isn't the Y a private organization? As such, they have the right/responsibility to serve their members. So if their members want or need a private swim time, they should offer it. Especially if doing so doesn't take away from any other members. If you don't agree with the policy, don't join the Y, or give up your membership. Just as the Boy Scouts went all the way to the supreme court to affirm themselves a private organization with the right to discriminate. Don't like what they stand for? Don't be a member. Don't like the Muslim restrictions on women? Don't become a Muslim. But don't denigrate others for doing so. Part of the whole American ethos is to allow for these differences and to allow private organizations to accommodate them.
